Yesterday was Sunday.
The usual noises and loudspeakers shouts I use to hear on Sunday Mornings,
I did not hear.
I heard serious Silence.
I heard the twing…twing..twing…
No usual Noises of Praises on Churches Horn Speakers.
The Usual Noises of Drum beats of Songs were missing.
Ah! The Devil Brought the Plague!
And They shut the doors of Churches.
They have closed up the Buildings of Churches.
They have shut down the Horn Speakers of Sermons and Choruses.
Then, I opened my data and checked my phone.
Then, I saw on Facebook and Instagram and other platforms.
I saw Noises!
I heard Voices.
I saw many Pulpits.
I saw many Pastors.
I saw Ministers high and low.
I saw Preachers preaching alone.
I saw Interpreters interpreting for the Preacher to a scanty people.
I flipped through my Facebook time line, and saw Ministers upon Pastors and Teachers…
Teaching vigorously to five or six people.
Preaching to wife and children who had dressed decently for Sunday service.
They had travelled from the Bedrooms into the Living room and sat down reverently for the Sunday Service.
I even saw a State Governor and his wife standing up to sing hymn in their living room as they follow a Preacher on Television.
A family held a Church Service and still collected the Offering and Tithes at “Offering Time”.
They said they would envelope it and forward it to their Pastor.
I laugh in Spanish Lingua Franca!
I Chuckle in Swahili KwaZulu!
I Smile in Portuguese Creole!
What did the Devil think he is doing?
Mr. Devil, what do you think you are doing to us?
You think you have shut the Doors of the Church on the Streets!.
Ladies and Gentlemen!
THE DEVIL SHUT THE DOORS OF CHURCH BUILDINGS!
BUT GOD HAS JUST OPENED SEVERAL CHURCHES IN SEVERAL HOUSES ON THE STREETS.
The Church in my house, yesterday, on Sunday Morning was interesting.
The Sermon was from 1 Samuel 13.
The story of the Impatience of Saul and the discontinuity of his Kingdom.
The Essence of Full Obedience.
The Essence of Complete Patience in His Presence.
And it was a full Congregation.
We were so many!
The now Universal Standard number of an Ideal Congregation!
Three Married Men!
Three Married Women!
One Single Sister!
One little baby!
The small and Mega Churches are closed for NOW,
SO that each of us may learn to look inward away from Man and focus on God when the Buildings are eventually opened again,
Maybe Next Week.
Maybe Next Month
Maybe Next Year.
Maybe Not Again till the Trumpet Sounds.
When the Buildings are opened again,
We are now wiser.
We are now more serious minded.
Many people have died all over the World, when the Church is Opened again.
We would know we are living by His Mercy.
The Attacks and Anger against Genuine Men of God and Pastors would have reduced by then,
When the Church is Opened for us again.
Now…Maybe we would take God Serious,
When, NEXT Week, next Month, or Next Year,
When the Church is Opened again.
If is Now or Later….
THE LORD GOD OF HEAVEN IS STILL THE SAME.
